With the exception of the flanger and the chorus, this whole series is one to avoid. Danny, you screwed up with this one.

Cheap. Plastic knobs that break off easily, plasice switch, plastic case.
Horrible. Very grainy, gritty overdrive. Sounds thin and cheap.
Ease of Use:
Easy to use, easy to hate.
Live playing? C'mon, even if you wanted to sound like this at a gig, it would last through too many of them!
I looked at a T-Bone distortion that same day, and at times I regretted getting this one. but all in all it grows on you, and I learned to appreciate all the red pedal can do. However, it's a mean fuzz pedal disguised as an overdrive.

Very simple to set up, one volume and one tone knob. Careful though they break off easily. AC-jack but battery is fine too. The only thing I wish for it would be someone to come up with some creative modifications to it, otherwise its just fine.
Ive used this one with my main live amp, a 100W Tube Driver combo, and even with a 12watt all-tube Princeton. It sounds just fine. I play mainly Rock and some blues, and it seems to be fine with either. I wouldnt recommend it for metal. I got a great sound with a Delay, a wah and this pedal. I used that for a recording we did in studio and it sounded like a fuzz. Just great.
Doesn't really take a lot of tweaking to get a good tone out of this one. Danelectro has sort of settings on its website, but most people just max the drive and set the volume about 1/2 way.
Ive owned it for over a year, plus used it on gigs, and the little guy is fine, with a few exceptions of knobs being easily broken off. My average rating is due to the knobs being very easily broken off, so becareful with that size 14 ok?
Get it, it won't hurt you two, it's very good easy overdrive, live it, love it, buy it.

Well it's cheap, it does what's made for, good! It was my first pedal and it gave me a nice sound to tinker with, woopee.
It sounds like a overdrive, very nice and warm, it's worth everycent, which isn't many cents. Just get it, enjoy it, won't bust your wallet to get it.
Plug in turn two micro knobs and you set is that really that hard.
It's Plastic don't hit hard, but I don't so it's great for me!
My other pedals where messing around, this thing is a real searching for tone, and I got it perfectly.
This is exactly
what I wanted, and sounds really amazing for the 25 bucks I spent.

Two knobs and a button ac and battery powered.
Used with my amp tryed on gain and on clean, sounds better on clean with the real sound of the pedal comeing through. Basically a fuzz masqurading as an OverDrive.
You pretend to be Jimi Hendrix or the Who with this along with Nirvana and punk. A very good little cheap great sounding pedal that is a great deal for pros or begginers.
A monkey could use this without training.
Farily Strong if you don't pound it or stomp it (like some morons do) it should last.
